Stafford Studios is proud to be on the board of advisers for the Portland Small Business Network.
The Portland Small Business Network is a dynamic, diverse and vibrant group of Portland business owners and entrepreneurs. PSBN was established by Lily Pak in 2011 to fill a void in the local business community. Her vision was to create a networking group that was a bit less structured yet still focused on the importance of local business. Lily shares, “There are no annual dues and no requirements to bring leads, yet we still focus on the value of your business and the strength that a dynamic networking group can provide. We are also careful to maintain a manageable number of guests in each location so that individuals can make the most of their networking time. If a group gets too large, it’s really difficult to make meaningful and memorable connections.”
Stafford Studios joined the board of advisers in 2017 and is dedicated to contributing to the integrity of the group by providing professional web design, graphic design, creative media, photography, and creative communication services to businesses in and around Portland. Dawna Stafford, owner of Stafford Studios says, “We know many businesses already have a website in place, but often times there’s a need to reevaluate their overall marketing message and consider working with a web professional who truly cares about them and their business. I want to take what has become automated and outsourced and make it personal again.”
The Portland Small Business Network typically meets twice a month in alternating locations downtown Portland. There are no sales in the group, no commitments and just a $5 cover charge for each event. Each month you will find familiar faces as well as new connections in a wide variety of businesses. Get ready to be recharged and inspired by connecting with other like minded professionals who will add value to your team!
